In a world where television news will eventually eat itself rather than report on things that have actually happened, Sky's election night coverage is to be enhanced by a behind-the-scenes live special, broadcasting on Sky Arts 1HD, switching between fixed cameras set up around their Osterley and Westminster studios. Commentary will be provided by Mark Longhurst, with Martin Stanford roaming around with a mini-camera. 10pm til 8am. Marvellous.

Meanwhile the BBC will be ensconced in their own crinkly tin shed in Elstree, but are clearly wishing they were really in W1. Not only will there be projections on Broadcasting House, but a UK map will be squeezed on the floor of the Entwistle Piazza, twixt the pesky rising bollards and reception. Land's End may actually spread out into Regent's Street. Exciting.
